Home based intervention

On 22nd February 2016, THE ABILITY GROUP REHABILITATION CENTRE a registered society was founded. The organization was established as the will of the citizens to participate actively in awareness and protection and to provide and facilitates equitable access to sustainable quality, affordable rehabilitation services with wide range of assistive devices such as standing frame, mobility devices along with therapeutic intervention and speech therapy services to improve quality of life and to ease the activity of daily living for the person with disability. The Ability Group established a Rehabilitation Centre for the out- patient rehabilitation services and also working on community based rehabilitation services in rural areas of Imphal east district.

Now the organization is looking forward for the expansion of health care facility specially in rural areas with the establishment of multi speciality hospital at affordable cost (for the needy and poor rural) as most of physically challenge people need extra health care facility along with regular rehabilitation services at one’s disposal. Most of the orthopedically and neurological challenged people need surgical intervention and its not easily accessible to rural area which is why a multi speciality set up becomes mandatary.

Mission:

“Empowering the people with disability by facilitating access to rehabilitation services, prosthetics services, promoting inclusive development and enhancing their quality of life. Developing all types of appropriate health care facility at grassroots level for person with disability.”

Vission:

“To give a good quality of life to the people with disability by providing equal access to health and livelihood.”
